Scarecrow's inky/purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a prodigious effort. It reveals a liqueur of crushed rocks intermixed with a smorgasbord of spring flower blueberry creme de cassis and assorted blue black and red fruit characteristics. It also possesses extraordinary concentration but what sets it apart is the fragrant aromatics combined with uncommon purity and elegance for such a full-bodied massively concentrated wine. Its perfect balance suggests it can be drunk at a relatively young age but it should easily evolve over 30-35 years. Congratulations to all involved!

Firm fresh intense and vibrant exhibiting a minerally crushed rock flavor and a texture mixed with ripe currant plum and blackberry with a dash of mocha-laced oak. Full-bodied with floral scents and elegant balance. Firms on the finish where the tannins provide grip for the flavors. Drink now through 2022. 1000 cases made. -JL

Strongly mineral aromas of black raspberry cassis dark chocolate licorice and menthol plus a whiff of Rutherford dust. Then silky sexy and concentrated with compelling inner-mouth perfume to the red and black fruit flavors complicated by loam and minerals. Very light on its feet. There's an essentially gentle character to this wine but also sneaky intensity excellent grip and a serious spine for aging. The very rich mineral-driven finish offers substantial but utterly sweet tannins and lovely lingering perfume. There's very little raisining at this site in Rutherford as the fairly rich soils have good moisture-holding capacity and the hills to the west block the late-afternoon sun. A beauty now but it would be a shame not to give this some time to blossom in the bottle.
